April 15 tax marches: Law prof’s tweet starts grassroots movement calling for release of Trump’s tax returns

On Jan. 22, 2017, Jennifer Taub (Vermont Law School), whose research and teachings focuses on corruption, corporate political spending and the links between politics and money tweeted this:

Let’s plan a nationwide #DivestDonald and #showusyourtaxes protest for Saturday, April 15

Now more than 130 marches are expected to take place Saturday, April 15th. A full list of times and places available on the Tax March website. The DC march, which kicks off at 12pm at the US Capitol West Front Fountain is expected to be the biggest: more than 50,000 people have listed themselves on Facebook as interested or attending.
